] and kristen soltis. welcome to you all. newt gingrich said to me earlier there are five words that will break obama. unemployment, gasoline, benghazi, and big bird. kristen, is he right? >> i think the four words are where are the jobs. it's four, not five. i think that's why you saw in last night's debate the whole thing was a bit like a shopping cart that's broken, it's got a busted wheel, so it always keeps kareening off to the left. it was a foreign policy debate but it kept coming back to domestic policy because that's the real central question in this election. >> you're a late convert to romney. recently came out for him. watching it last night, i thought he did okay. what i thought was he couldn't wait, every time he got the chance to get it back to domestic, particularly economic policy. that's his safe ground. he didn't drop any clangers with the foreign stuff but he just tried to twist everything back to where he thinks he can win. am i right? >> no. i mean, there's no question that he thinks his strong suit is domestic policy. look, i for one, maybe i'm being played, i

. back now, charles blow and kristen soltis. i mean, i get the feeling that after barack obama got home after the debate the other night, i imagine a few doors got slammed. what the heck were you doing obama? >> i am not going to speculate. >> i reckon it was the spare room for the president. >> but i do believe she is a very strong advocate for the president. i believe that he is now understanding the depths to which that debate performance hurt him, and actually hurt people that were for him. i think they are trying to re-calibrate. the other thing i think they're trying to do is stop a little bit of some of the democratic panic. that some people on the left are looking at this and thinking they see a surge by mitt romney. they saw the performance, there is not another debate until tomorrow. the president doesn't debate until next week. what is going to stop the polls from moving? >> i agree with you, i think andrew sullivan, the accent is ridiculous, part of the blogs, it is the end of the world as we know it. it is all over, we're all doomed. come on, kristen soltis, how important i
